Special cuvee of Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Pinot Blanc and Gewürztraminer, a crisp, mineral, multi-dimensional, very dry white.

 

US-journalist Tom Hyland has selected the 500 most distinctive wines of Italy. His book “Beyond Barolo and Brunello: Italy’s Most Distinctive Wines” describes Stoan as “truly one of Italy’s finest and most distinctive white wines”.

 

2015 Vintage: Mild spring temperatures brought on an early start of the vegetation period. The summer months were exceptionally sunny and dry. However, cool nights still allowed for the balanced development of physiological ripeness. Thanks to a cool September, maturation slowed, resulting in an excellent harvest of optimally mature grapes. Our elegant white wines show marked juiciness, depth and manifold aromas; the red wines are fruity, intense and full of character.

 

Grapes: Chardonnay 65%, Sauvignon 20%, Pinot Blanc 10%, Gewürztraminer 5%

Soil: gravelly to rocky, limestone and loam, rich in minerals.

Age of the vines: 10 – 40 years

Climate: Extreme interplay of sunny days influenced by the Mediterranean climate and the

cool nights marked by the cold downslope winds from the surrounding mountains.

Vinification: At harvest, the grapes were delivered in small bins and immediately gently pressed. Fermentation took place slowly at controlled temperatures (18-20°C) in wood barrels (30 – 40 hl), in which partial malolactic fermentation took place. Clarification took place through natural sedimentation of particles.

Maturation: It matured separately in large wood barrels (30-40 hl), at constant contact with the lees until the end of August. After blending and bottling, the wine matured in the bottle for at least another 4 months. The total maturation period is thus at least 15 months. .

Colour: Light golden

Aroma: Elegant and refined, fruity notes of peach, apricot, pear, elderflower, kumquat, white

flowers with fine spicy notes, jasmine, mimosa.

Taste: Deep fruit aromas of pineapple, banana, pear, tomato leaves, green bell pepper, citrus zest, harmonic and balanced, delicate salty minerality with a long lasting, creamy finish.

Food pairing: Ideal accompaniment to many tasty first courses, excellent with fish dishes and seasoned white meat or also with spicy pork with mushrooms.
